Over the years, Jayasree carried write-ups of luminaries like Anil Roy, Dr RC Majumdar, HV Kamath, Dr Atindra Nath Bose, Netaji\\'s nephews Dr Ashoke Nath Bose and Amiya Nath Bose among others. Poet Tagore was a regular contributor of course. During the Emergency years, in a daring first ever publication, Dr RC Majumdar narrated in Jayasree the now famous anecdote of former British Prime Minister Clement Attlee\\'s frank admissions on Subhas\\'s presence in the USSR after his death, and his singular contribution in making India free.
Despite her failing health, Leela Roy steered Jayasree till mid-1960s. Then the editorship passed on to Sunil Das, an inspiring revolutionary freedom fighter that free India forgot. In 1990s the mantle passed on to Prof Samar Guha, the man who took Netaji mystery to every Indian, and then to Bijoy Nag, with whose kind permission we are reproducing the pieces below.

By Sumit MukhopadhyayThe purpose of this essay is not to belittle Mahatma Gandhi. The reader will notice that nowhere has Gandhi’s campaign to oust Bose been termed as immoral or unethical. At the same time it is not possible to know the truth by imposing divinity on Gandhi.
